The Tryall Club offers a golf course with a varied terrain whose borders skirt the shoreline and climb up forested hills. Jungle ravines and coconut groves that are scattered throughout this championship course provide a scenic tropical setting. The Tryall Club layout features an interesting variety of holes that can be played several different ways due to their unique challenges, guaranteeing that a round on this course will never be boring. The signature hole however, is the par-3 fourth hole, on which the Caribbean Sea and the Flint River come into play. Next to the Tryall Club's seventh hole is an 18th-century water wheel that once powered the sugar mills that used to be on the estate.

Since most golfers visiting Jamaica are probably staying in Rose Hall to play the White Witch, Cinnamon Hill and Half Moon Bay, getting to experience the wonders of Tryall isn't easy. It's a good hour's drive - complicated by the trip through the heart of bustling Montego Bay - but well worth the effort to find the island's best tournament course. Tryall hosted Shell's Wonderful World of Golf in 1962, the LPGA Tour from 1985-91 and the Johnny Walker World Championship from 1991-95. All the great names who played in the Johnny Walker event, from Nick Faldo to Greg Norman, have their pictures on the wall of the newly remodeled clubhouse. A hilly back nine cut through the jungle gives Tryall its best holes, but the addition of the dramatic seaside par-3 fourth hole in 1992 was what really completed a world-class course. A golfer can't come to Jamaica without trying Tryall.
